Backpack Bridge – more than filling a gap

Friday, January 31, 2020

Upon entering Tami Mouser's downtown place of business Wednesday morning, the mother of four and CEO/Founder of the Backpack Bridge was multitasking the logistics of receiving donations on the phone, and delegating to her teammates that were vying for her attention right next to her desk.

Born and raised in Mountain Home by entrepreneurial parents who were dedicated to the community, Mouser has followed suit in pursuing her business dreams and contributing in a very special way to the community. By acting as a bridge between parents and teachers who struggle to meet the needs of students in the Mountain Home School District, the Backpack Bridge is more than filling a gap – it’s filling hearts.

For years leading up to its creation, Mouser listened to her clients, both teachers and parents, talk about the challenges of making ends meet. It was overwhelming for both sides of the story.
